91 anglers took part in this popular festival sponsored by Mahon's Hotel, Irvinestown, Co.Fermanagh from Monday 6th to Friday 10th May. Cold, wet and windy conditions faced the anglers fishing various venues in and around Enniskillen. Big nets of silver fish, Roach and Perch were caught on the waggler and pole in windy conditions, with Boa Island fishing particularly well.

The top ten were paid out with Rod Scott collecting £2000 for his 65.720kg, 2nd Eddie Bridon 59.650kg and 3rd Lee Harries with 58.900kg.

This year a special award was presented by Joe Mahon to the legendary Ron Williams. Ron has fished the Classic match for all of it's 38years being it's longest serving competitor. He holds the record for being last every year at the Mahon's Festival but still comes back to fish every year. Ron is now an honary Mahon's entrant and will no longer have to pay into the pools for this match in the future.

The majority of entrants travelled over from the UK having fished the Waterways Classic the week before, with great participation from local anglers.

This year 5 Germans made the especially long trip and Michael Peter was rewarded by 9th place with 56.500kg.

The Festival organisers would like to thank Joe Mahon and Mahon's Hotel for their continued sponsorship, Fermanagh District Council for use of the Forum and the local anglers and landowners for their support of this event.
